As Jem matures, his interest in taunting Boo Radley fades. Jem begins to see his father's point that everybody deserves their respect and privacy. Jem sees Boo Radley as a person more than the neighborhood "monster". Jem is really affected by the trial. He feels a loss of innocence. The cruelty of his neighbors in his own town was shown to her through the trial. He also saw the dignity in which the black people held themselves. Jem is quickly maturing into a young man but, unlike his father, he lacks the worldly wisdom to handle the hypocrisy of the town.
